Being a part of Jhamtse Club truly changed my perspective on life and interactions between people from different cultures. I've donated to and been a part of charities and organizations that haven't been that satisfying because they felt so distant from the everyday people they were helping. Not so with Jhamtse Gatsal. From the first day I got involved, I was seeing pictures, and hearing the first-hand stories of the kids and the school and the villages. It was so personal. I felt connected to them. Eventually, people in the club wrote letters to the kids at Jhamtse, and I wrote one, too. When I say that they'd read them and written back, it made me so happy because Jhamtse Gatsal really is a community. Being a part of it has made me more optimistic and purposeful. It also feels so good to know that every dollar raised is going straight to the school, its upkeep, and its expansion to include more kids. This place really is a gem, a truly beautiful garden of love and compassion.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my school. As a part of the Jhamtse Club there, I saw how the money we raised helped keep Jhamtse growing and expanding.
